Hmm, seems as if we're both right. This is really awkward.
Running the latest svn version of nmap on OS X I get:

Nmap scan report for
Host is up (0.000064s latency).

Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 0.06 seconds

When running the same command against the latest svn version on Linux I get:
./nmap -np 22
./nmap: option '-np' is ambiguous

Any ideas anyone?

Probably just different getopt implementations? I don't know what "-np"

that works for everyone.
